Gross-Zagier formula
Shouwu Zhang (Columbia)


     In this talk I will describe two general formulae of Gross-Zagier type. One is for CM-points on Shimura curves over totally real number fields, and other is about Gross-Schoen cycles on triple product of Shimura curves. One ingredient of the proof is to generalize some previous work of Hirzebruch-Zagier and Borcherds about the modularity of some generating function of divisors on the product of Shimura curves.
